Cameo Shooting & Educational Complex

The Defensive Handgun I Course will be held at the Cameo Shooting & Educational Complex, located at Cameo Exit 46 on I-70 near Palisade, CO. We’ll start at 8:30 am and go until around 1 pm. We’ll break for a lunch and then continue on with a Defensive Handgun II after lunch, just in case you decide you’d like to also continue with us.

The DH1 is ideal for anyone of any skill level to learn safe handgun handling and use when fighting for life itself while under the stress inherent in such a fight.

The DH1 consists of learning or improving a natural, neutral fighting stance, proper and safe handling, draw stroke, loading correctly, recoil management, intuitive unsighted and sighted fire, and far more, ultimately creating combat accuracy while building speed and efficiency that works well with what the body does naturally when under fear and high stress.

Our students leave the range with realistic defensive fighting knowledge and skills, as well as having a great time. Get a friend to come along, it will only enhance what you learn!

Needed items:

– A handgun
– reliable holster
– a sturdy belt
– approximately 350 – 450 rounds of ammunition per person (for a semi-automatic), or 250 – 350 rounds of ammunition (for revolvers)
– three (3) magazines per semi-automatic handgun
– eye and ear protection
– any non-alcoholic beverage and food you’d like

If you have questions about using or finding a handgun and the needed accessories, please contact me as soon as possible to arrange help in picking one or ideas for the correct type of handgun best used for a dynamic defensive situation.

If you do not have a handgun but plan on purchasing one before the class, please contact Defenders USA first, if at all possible. We might be able to rent out a handgun or two for those who need to use one. We will be able to help in the selection of a proper defensive handgun that is a quality, efficient defensive handgun versus what is often pushed by the gun-counter sales folks at the vast majority of gun stores, or by the many other low-quality CCW courses, or that is usually recommended by others who do not understand defensive handguns as well as they usually believe.

The students will be doing a lot of moving so comfortable clothing with belt support is needed. Please remember this is an outdoor environment so dress accordingly.

Please be open-minded, especially those who already have been through some training somewhere. This is usually easy for those who’ve had little or no previous handgun training, so no issues there. But, if you’ve had some training somewhere else, please put any ego and former training habits aside enough to come learn. The vast majority of “gun people”, military personnel, and law enforcement who attend this training are almost always surprised in this training, finding it to be above and beyond what they’ve been through so far. And those with former firearms training will often find the techniques they’d previously ingrained are less efficient than what is actually needed. Come as an open book and willing to be challenged and to learn.

For those who chose to continue on their training, we will begin the Defensive Handgun II that afternoon after a short break for some lunch. The link to register for the combined Defensive Handgun I & II can also be found on our website calendar.

Testimonials

I just wanted to give a little testimonial from the experience I received from your training. This past weekend I attended an Active Duty military pistol qualification course. I have been involved with these in the past and, but after attending Defenders training in March with my wife, I felt much more confident as to my technique on the range. It was a pop up target course with targets ranging from 10 meters to 35 meters. I normally am able to hit anywhere from 19-22 targets, but after using what I learned, I was able to qualify expert hitting 26 of 30 targets (I missed a 25 and 35 on the move). Thanks for the training, what you teach has real applications. I also was a range safety for this particular range afterwards and noticed myself on more than one occasion yelling “You only place your finger on the trigger when you are ready to destroy your target!”. Too funny. Rather interesting how many people have that bad habit. Thanks Adam, I will definitely keep passing the word about your class.
